Thousands of farmers from across Canada and the United States attended Canada's Outdoor Farm Show in Woodstock, Ontario, Canada, in September. There, they came face to face with the latest innovations in seed, crop protection and equipment technologies and, in many cases, making key buying decisions. 

Glacier Farm Media operates COFS, plus the successful Ag in Motion show in Western Canada.

The key to both expositions is their interactive nature, notes Bill Whitelaw, Glacier's executive vice-president of business information. "For our farmer delegates, what's important is to see crops and crop management in action. This activity helps them make some key decisions by seeing, for example, equipment running as it would in their fields."
